Kenny Anderson, Fisk University Coach, Returns Home after Stroke

Great news to hear that Anderson has left the hospital after suffering a stroke over the weekend.

After reporting yesterday that NYC hoops legend, Kenny Anderson, had been hospitalized after suffering a stroke, we have great news to share this morning.

According to The Daily News, Anderson has left the hospital and is now recovering at home.

“We would like to thank everyone for reaching out on behalf of Kenny,” said Anderson’s wife, Natasha in a statement. “Our family is extremely grateful for all the prayers and love that we have received over the last few days. We appreciate you continuing to respect our privacy as Kenny heals.”

Natasha first noticed something was wrong over the weekend, fortunately catching the signs of the stroke early on..

Anderson is known as one the greatest players ever to come out of New York. He’s another icon on the long list of legendary NYC point guards that includes players like Mark Jackson, Pearl Washington, Rod Strickland, Stephon Marbury, Tiny Archibald and more.

After becoming a star at Archbishop Molloy in Queens, Anderson went on to play at Georgia Tech, where he partnered with Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver to form the Yellowjackets’ own “Lethal Weapon 3”. He was selected by the Nets with the second overall pick in the 1991 NBA Draft and went on to play in the League for 14 seasons.

We broke the news of Anderson going to Fisk as the University’s head coach and spoke with the new HBCU coach a few months ago at a live “Strictly Speaking” with Rod Strickland event in Brooklyn.

Everyone is glad to hear that KA is doing better. Our best to him and his family on his continued recovery.
